developments of interest in respect inequality especially in the united states was getting worse. over the years since and particularly in the 1990's, there developed a dominant narrative on the subject, in which the classic economic motions of supply tended to predominate. that is to say, developed in the literature in the explanation of inequality based upon technology and the demand of for skill, education, supply of the skill. immigration and trade and the supply of unskilled labor contended forces operating in the labor market, but operating in ways that economists understand to be substantially microeconomic driven in character. this suggested that the environment in which the forces were cooperating was substantially self-contained labor market which is might be looped to each other but only by the kinds of channels i just described by the i did i did fiewshes of technology, by the migration of workers by trades in good with difference ever differing composition in the labor that puts them together. if you went to the journal of economic litedture, in fact if you go there today

's ability to do something about this. after all, about a third of chinese exports come to the united states. their future is tied to our future in a way that can't be matched by any other bilateral relationship around the world. i want to rewind the tape for about 12 years and go back to 2000 when not only president clinton but also candidate george bush, former president ford, former president carter, and alan greenspan and everyone was saying, we have to bring china in through the world trading system, we have to end the annual review of chinese human rights, otherwise the united states will be isolated. if we do this, we will have balance trade with china, we will have democracy in china, we will have respect for human rights. we'll all be better off. if you haven't figured it out, that was the biggest joke perpetuated on the american people. you haven't been paying attention. we have a $295 billion trade deficit. that's a record with china last year. we have 2.8 million lost american jobs. you have china using this wealth to opress its people with the help of equipment provided by a man

about the politics. republicans in the united states senate filibustered on student loans today. how is that youth vote coming along republican party? interest rates on student loans are set to double this summer unless congress takes action. republicans were set to let that happen last month, to let student loan rates double. after public pressure from president obama, mitt romney, the republican candidate and the republicans in the house of representatives changed their mind. they dropped their previous position. they said they would agree to act to keep student loan rates where they are. as of today, apparently the deal is off. they filibustered the deal to keep student loan rates from going up. if this does not get fixed, everybody's student loans across the country will double their interest rate this summer. you can thank massachusetts senator scott brown for that. a vulnerable incumbent like scott brown sided with the republican filibuster on this issue. just incredible. also, incredible, the long awaited endorsement of mitt romney for president by the last contender left stan
overseas trip for francois hollande if he is elected this evening will be to the united states. there is a nato summit and a g8 summit that are happening in washington and chicago in just a few weeks. his first will be to berlin because, of course, the franco-german friendship is crucial, and the second will be to the united states if he is elected. that's when he will get to meet barack obama, the u.s. president. the one tiny issue between france and the u.s. were there. not exactly on the same page. if it's francois hollande, afghanistan -- he said he wants to withdraw all french troops from afghanistan by the end of this year. nicolas sarkozy, the incumbent has said he will wait until next year. randy. >> it has been an interesting race. things got pretty heated in a debate last week with sarkozy calling hollande a liar. >> reporter: well, what happened is that, yes, it did become personal. you don't feel that these two men like each other on a personal level. it got a bit heated when sarkozy kept using the word lie, and that's where francois hollande said why do you keep us
that to put bombs inside printer cartridges and put them on aircraft bound for the united states using material called petn, white powdery substances, a detonator. very difficult to detect by conventional x-ray machines. so they are looking -- the fbi has the device, they say. they are looking at all of it trying to do the technical, the forensic analysis on it. very tantalizing detail. the person who would have used the bomb no longer a threat. nobody in the government is saying whether that person is dead or in custody. ashleigh? >> we went through this last week. we went through the anniversary. we heard from the government there was no credible threat and now we're hearing all of this. what do we know about this guy? dead, alive, in custody? >> as i said, we don't know if whether he's dead or in custody, but he would have perhaps just been the front man for all of this. the real person they are looking for is a man named ibrahim al asiri, part of al qaeda in the, a rabbian peninsula in yemen. a very key if not senior operative for al qaeda there and a master bombmaker by all accoun
for the united states, the reset was not just about improving the tone of the relationship which had gotten a bit scratchy, it was also about a substantive agenda that would fundamentally improve living standards and a lot of people in both countries. and clearly the start treaty, the cooperation that russia and the united states achieved, particularly in afghanistan, those are signal accomplishments that i think signaled early on that both countries were serious about getting back to business and recapturing the intentions both countries had. but probably the goals both countries set for themselves were w.t.o. w.t.o. membership from russia did not depend on the united states alone. obviously it fended mostly on actions russia needed to take. president obama made clear that he was willing to work with our european allies, to work with the europeans, to work with the business community to ensure that everyone saw the benefits of w.t.o. succession. the fact that russia was not in the w.t.o. seemed incomprensible to president obama. i believe you were in the meeting with me when president obama and

: al qaeda is saying it wants the united states to stop its air attacks in afghanistan, pakistan and yemen immediately, otherwise mr. winestein faces an uncertain fate. he says if you accept the demands, i live. if you don't accept the demands, i die. he said it was important that the president accept the demands quickly and not delay. he says there will be no benefit in delaying. it will just make things more difficult for me. he tried to reach out in personal words saying hopefully i can enjoy my two daughters like you enjoy your two daughters. this is the second confirmation by al qaeda that he's been held by the group. bill: he was taken in eastern afghanistan. has he been moved to the more volatile area? report report suspicions are he was moved to the west to waziristan where the majority of al qaeda operatives are in safe haven these days. the al qaeda operatives took him in august. it could be a criminal gang. though the police had no real leads. even the u.s. embassy is remaining quiet about it. he appears to be looked after fairly well. he's 70 years old and has a heart
worked really hard to have this moment, to have the first president of the united states to take this position. now in terms of the policy changing what actually happens on the ground, this doesn't do anything really. it's nice of the president lay down his marker, but there is a long road ahead to get rid of the difference of marriage act and turning over thighs these 30 state bans on controversial marriage. >> is this as rhetoricalcally as richard says, not changing things on day-to-day life, and there are those who say this is a necessary but step and now follow up with tangible act. is now he can create and frame a new moral framework. >> the president took a big risk today. this has never been done before. for someone who has been married since december to my husband this means a lot personally. i believe this is going to snowball. someone from this amount of power takes this risk i think others are going to follow suit. we already saw jack reed, a senator from rhode island say he was in favor of gay marriage. this will go from changing public opinion to changing policy. you
